Jose is once again a hurricane as of Friday afternoon. The category 1 storm could prompt some tropical storm warnings along the U.S. East Coast over the weekend.
"Swells generated by Jose are affecting Bermuda, the Bahamas, the northern coasts of Hispaniola and Puerto Rico, and the southeast coast of the United States, and will spread northward along the Mid-Atlantic coast of the U.S. during the next few days," read the Friday 5 p.m. EDT update on Jose from the National Hurricane Center. "These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions."
Invest 96L continued to march west and is expected to strengthen into either a tropical depression or possibly a tropical storm soon.
As of Friday afternoon, the tropical wave was about 1100 miles east of the Windward Islands.
"Tropical storm or hurricane watches could be issued for portions of the Lesser Antilles on Saturday, and interests in those islands should closely monitor the progress of this system," said the National Hurricane Center.
Tropical Depression Fourteen was finding a tougher go a little further out in the Atlantic about 450 miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.
The NHC noted the system did not look as organized as it did at the start of Friday as it fought wind shear. It could still become a tropical storm over the weekend, but it will be moving into more areas of wind shear that could leave it a remnant low by the middle of next week.
For now, all 3 systems are not a threat to the Gulf Coast.
